Combined GMANZ/NZGCSA Summit and Fine Turf Seminar 13th -15th June 2021

“Prospering in an unreal world”

Early Bird registrations now open.

The Golf Managers Association of New Zealand (GMANZ) and the New Zealand Golf Course Superintendents Association Inc.(NZGCSA) would like to extend a warm welcome to club managers, course superintendents, staff , club chairmen, board members and suppliers to the golf industry to attend the Combined GMANZ/NZGCSA Summit and Fine Turf Seminar 13-15 June 2021 at the Vodafone Events Centre Manukau.

Early Bird registrations for delegates, trade exhibitors and event partners are now open.

In these uncertain times it is the obligation of both our Associations to provide the best outcomes for New Zealand’s Golf industry by bringing golf managers and golf course superintendents, staff, Board chairs and members and industry suppliers together under Alert Level 1 in a safe and collaborative manner to discuss opportunities to grow our game in these unusual times. Working in our own silos will not have the impact needed to survive in what is a highly competitive sporting environment.

We need to be able to work together across both our sectors if we are going to have a real impact. The secret about collaborating and cross sectoral work is it requires us to work in new and different ways. It can be hard, and it requires us to give things up, or to renegotiate loyalties.  It requires us to care about the things that our collaborators care about. But when it works, it can be very powerful.

We expect to attract in excess of 200 delegates to the event starting with an opening night networking gathering in the trade exhibitors pavilion followed by the first day of the Summit with experts from within the industry sharing their knowledge and advice on topics of a general interest in Q&A sessions and workshops. The second day including the Fine Turf Seminar will follow the same presentation format with the topics addressed being very specific to the two industry sectors.

Topics to be covered by the experts

Asset Management Data Intelligence
Digital innovation Diversity and inclusion
Financial forecasting in an unreal world Financial benchmarking
Golf Sustainability Governance
Growing Degree Days Human Resources
Golf and Mental Health Golf Course Design
Golf Sustainability Governance
Leadership Manager & Superintendent relationships
Membership growth and retention Minimum Levels for Sustainable Nutrition
Productivity Public Relations
Social Media for clubs Supplier relationships
The casual golfer/green fee growth

To keep abreast of developments especially from an environmentally friendly perspective we expect to attract a full book of trade exhibitors to showcase their latest developments.

We think it is important that we share what we are learning.  We are not great at collaboration in Aotearoa New Zealand and the challenges we need to navigate are going to force us to do more and more of it.  So, if we are going to get better at it, let us learn from each other so we can prosper in these unusual and unreal times.

We welcome your attendance.

Enquiries can be addressed to our 2021 Combined GMANZ/NZGCSA Summit and Fine Turf Seminar organiser
